  With so many things on your plate, how do you actually turn it off? 1.  Unplugged  Do you remember when a vacation was actually a vacation?   This means getting away from the office and not being in touch with anyone except a family member or friend back home you called only once when you arrived. I recall the days when we went away on vacation or camping and there was no way to contact anyone except going to a front desk/store and using...

  Remember when you used to actually go to the office to take care of business from Monday through Friday?   The speed of business is moving fast and it will keep moving faster!   How are you keeping up as the leader? What worked in the past may work in some areas of your business, however, many areas of business have had to change.   The conversation is different today.   Customers are requiring more expertise, business strategy and stronger relationships....

  Are you settling for where the bar is or are you the one who keeps moving the bar higher? As the leader of your team, your company and in your industry, you get to set the bar!   How do you coach and motivate your team to keep moving to this level? If you follow, instead of lead, then you have set the bar too low.  Sure, on paper it looks successful when you surpass the low bar, however, you and your...

  We are always thankful for those who support us, help us become better and to grow, both personally, professionally and as a company.   There were many partner meetings where we would always say "Don't Forget Where We Came From" and we would remember everyone along our journey. We are very thankful for our many clients, the ones who joined us today and all the way back to the ones supporting us for over 26 years - that's even before AlphaKOR...

  With all this rain, many of us had a change of plan yesterday and today.   What route would we take to get home to avoid getting stuck in the road and in heavy traffic?   Would we have to deal with a flooded basement when we went home?  Our basement flooded a few years ago and we had to change our plan. From the archives January 9th, 2014: Sometimes things happen resulting in a change of plan in your daily priorities....

  How do you make new connections? As a business professional, this is one of the most self-rewarding activities I really enjoy. Meeting people for the first time and interacting with them on a regular basis provides the opportunity to get to know each person' story. There are many ways to make new connections.  You can attend networking events, charity events, client appreciation open houses, introductions through tools such as LinkedIn or say hello to someone at the grocery store.  There are people...

  This is always a hot topic when discussing business with other professionals.  Why do some Teams move forward together while other Teams seem stagnant?  I just cringe when someone answers a question about trying something different with "No, that won't work, because we've always done it this way". Why are so many resistant to change?  Why do so many want to be complacent without even considering how to do it better? Embrace change.  Accept change.  Make the changes you know you need...

  What is your inspiration to do what you do? For me, it is working with people to make a positive difference.   Listening to stories about what others want to accomplish is inspiring.  Hearing about the challenges or why they cannot do it motivates me nudge them to step up and overcome these obstacles. Connecting people to help grow their network, their business and their impact is inspiring.  You never know where an introduction can lead to.   It is so exciting...

  We revisit this topic which falls in line with one of my favourite things about being an Entrepreneur which means to be vulnerable.  Are you the Brave One to be an Entrepreneur? Here are the 5 traits to be a Brave One: 1. Tension We need to have some tension about something that matters to us.  Be unreasonable in your desire to own it.  Channel this tension to be a Brave One and make it happen.  Make changes that make a difference. 2. Obsession The...

  How many e-mails do you send out in a day?   How many of them do you get replies to? Personalize your e-mail Message If you use templates and mass mailing for the majority of your e-mails, you may notice a small percentage of replies.   Personalize your message by referencing something that was shared by the person or something you learned about them or their company. Take the time to pay attention to details and reference it in your message.   An...
